    I have a serama baby. She never pipped... I candeled and saw her moving on day 21 so i pipped for her she was the only on left. 18 hours later she pushed at the hole and made a crack bit never zipped. We broke away some shell ro help her. She just stayed there like she was comfortable. Seemed odd she wasnt really trying. Got up this morning and she finally got out. It seems now like her legs are stuck in the forward position. She cant seem to get up on them and peeps like crazy trying. Any ideas??!

    Does she have any of the membrane left on her? I would just keep watching, make sure that she eats and drinks, and the rest will usually work itself out.
